Leading Others Through Change attendees will explore the concepts of adaptive and technical change and discover why we often default to applying technical solutions to adaptive problems. In a multi-media driven environment, leaders will learn how better influence others by harnessing proven behavior science techniques and models. They will be challenged to think critically about their organization’s power dynamics and better comprehend what truly inspires those around us to take action. Leaders will consider their own “change challenges” as they learn how to connect personal, social, and structural factors to results.

Challenge: Leaders consistently answer “lack of time” when asked the question “What gets in the way of your leadership effectiveness?” When leading others, the meetings, plethora of decisions, competing priorities, performance reviews (and everything else) chip away at the clock. Falling into this endless routine, passion diminishes and leaders grow tired – ultimately having a negative impact on organizational culture.

Solution: Instead of thinking of culture on an ominous, global level, impact culture by focusing on climates first. Based on these leader-led microclimates, we can make substantial progress. Lively Paradox believes that all leaders have the ability to be great and that individual leaders are the linchpins of culture. Lack of time and energy do not have to get in the way. Weariness and fatigue can be combated by making sure people are working in areas where they can consistently find energy. Poet David Whyte said, “The antidote to exhaustion is not necessarily rest. The antidote to exhaustion is wholeheartedness.”
